Be the catalyst that accelerates upReach’s growth and transforms social mobility

The upReach Development Advisory Board was established in 2018 to enable individuals to support our mission to boost social mobility in the UK. We are very grateful for the investment in upReach that these individuals have made which has enabled us to accelerate our growth. Through their support, upReach were able to open a new office in Manchester in September 2018, allowing us to support more students from the north of England. Each Board member is invited to help us develop our long term strategy, and commit to making an annual contribution to the Charity for at least two years.
